Boxer banned from shopping center for disagreeing with Obama on same-sex marriage
But first, the media had to misrepresent what he actually said. A reporter for the L. A. Examiner falsely reported that Pacquiao had quoted Leviticus 20:13, a verse referring to laws under the Hebrew theocracy in which homosexuality is a capital crime. It then accused him of advocating the killing of homosexuals.
As it turns out not only did Pacquiao not quote the verse, he's not even read Leviticus yet. The journalist who conducted the interview from which the quote allegedly came said, "That, Pacquiao never said nor recited, nor invoked and nor did he ever refer to such context."
But it doesn't matter. Intolerance must be stamped out. With steel-toed boots.
